Having taught for over 30 years it still remains an absolute pleasure and privilege as well as a source of professional and personal pride. I have been a Designated Safeguarding Lead for over 8 years in a secondary school setting and from April 1st 2017 I am the QEGSMAT Designated Safeguarding Lead. In 2015 I was accredited with the status of being a Specialist Leader in Education with my areas of specialism being Attendance, Attitudes to Learning and Safeguarding. I am therefore able to share my expertise and experience with other colleagues within the local and wider community. I am passionate about all things pastoral and I am committed to ensuring that all students enjoy school, make the most of the vast and varied opportunities available to them and achieve their very best academic outcomes.
